Empathy: The Charismatic Chimera.
Macarov, David
Journal of Education for Social Work, v14 n3 p86-92 Fall 1978
Three major meanings of "empathy" are discussed with reference to the widespread imprecision in its use. It is suggested that undifferentiated use of the term in social work education is dangerous, particularly in view of the positive valence associated with being empathetic. (Author/BH)
